Hello all! I am a mom of two wonderful boys. One, Shay (7), was dignosised with ADHD combined type a little more than a year ago. We moved him into a school that had a program for children with behavior problems. He was doing great that first year (first grade). Then right before they started second grade he got a new teacher for the behavior classroom. He has not been doing so well now. He has gone back to running out of the classroom, throwing fits that last up to 1-2 hours, refusing to do his work, I am sure you all have heard it all etc... I am at my wits in and we have tried everything besides medications. So now I have an appoinment and we will start some medications. He is falling behind in school because he is so impulsive. He doesn't know how to control himself. Most of our problems are at school, but it still stresses me out. I figured all these wonderful people on this board might be able to make me feel like I am not alone. Well that is my story My younger one is 3 and he has a big speech delay due to ear infections the first year of his life. I don't think he will have ADHD. We shall see as time goes on. Thanks!
